Hey Everyone!

I'm pretty sure the number of people that follow this blog is near nil at the moment, but I've been thinking of firing it up again. I'm thinking something along the line of primarily game reviews. We shall see, but in the meantime I apparently need to fix and polish up the sidebars!

Vice President Respectfully Requests That You Experience Rape

Really... sometimes these things write themselves. I can't elaborate on this any more than what it is.

Joe Biden, classy!

Couldn't Happen to a Better Guy

It's not often that I cheer bad things happening to anyone, but every now and then I have to step back and nod approvingly when people are terrible enough to warrant it. That being said, never would I wish physical harm or hardship on anyone.

Eliot Spitzer, well documented jackass and noted anti-Catholic from New York, appears to have lost his job. He'll undoubtedly find another one among the smarmy self indulgent MSM, but for now we'll just enjoy the slightly cleaner airwaves.


Casey Anthony: Prosecution Overreaches

Sad but true, Casey Anthony is going to get off as free as a jaybird with the recent ruling. To be absolutely fair, the jury could not convict based on the evidence provided. It's a crying shame that someone so obviously guilty of child endangerment at best will be walking the streets, making millions from the verdict that set her free, simply because the prosecution was so badly executed and the investigation was so badly mishandled. Having a toddler myself, it's enraging to see something like this happen, but for future investigations and prosecutions here is a textbook example of how not to do it.

It's nice that she was able to obtain an attorney as classy as her.

Little Green Footballs

I was musing today about what had happened to LGF. I've only been there a smattering of times in recent years, and the change seemed rather dramatic to me.

Check it out.

With the recent ruling....

As Western culture and society continues the decline that all empires and dominant societies must eventually face, I figured I'd post a few links regarding the ruling yesterday, one of which I believe I've posted in the past:

The Secular Case Against Gay Marriage

The Liberal Case Against Gay Marriage

One thing I've always found fascinating is that a "conservative" position is typically considered, by default, to be wrong, bigoted, unfeeling, or cold. Why is this? On some other sites, I've seen comments in articles that do not mention religion at all basically referring to the author of a well written article as a Bible thumping bigot. Yet, "liberal" positions are almost always full of feeling, caring, warmth, and by default correct. It's somewhat maddening. Until I finally stopped paying constant attention to the fate of our society, and trying to raise the dialogue and correct the course, life was pretty depressing.

The future is inevitable, for reference look at the past.

Sarah Palin on the Super Bowl Ad

Regarding the "controversial" Super Bowl Ad, Sarah Palin hits it spot-on:

What a ridiculous situation they’re getting themselves into now with their protest of CBS airing a pro-life ad during the upcoming Super Bowl game. The ad will feature Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow and his mom, and they’ll speak to the sanctity of life and the beautiful potential within every innocent child as Mrs. Tebow acknowledges her choice to give Tim life, despite less than ideal circumstances. Messages like this empower women! This speaks to the strength and commitment and nurturing spirit within women. The message says everything positive and nothing negative about the power of women — and life. Evidently, some women’s rights groups like NOW do not like that message.

I'm not a huge Palin fan, but she speaks the truth. There is absolutely no reason to protest this ad, no one is threatened, no one is insulted. I'm also not a huge Focus on the Family fan, but they've produced a positive ad that effectively explains and nurtures their position on this issue.

The "women's groups" protesting this ad only succeed in making themselves look all the more ridiculous by reflexively reacting to anything that doesn't appear to be Anti-Life.

Patience and Gaming

Last night, Innuendo had the weekly "farm status" raid. Many brought their alts, and we decided to run Naxxramas for various reasons. As was to be expected, with a few new to the instance players, and badly geared alts, we wiped a couple of times. This was mostly related to the new players and not the gear so much, which brings me to my point. Patience is truly a virtue in a rewarding online game experience. We were all there once. Yes, I'm looking at you Joe Elitist who ever wiped EVAR and soloed Kael'Thas the day after The Eye opened. You were there once. All of us have had a period where we were unsure of how the game mechanics worked, or what "positive side left, negative side right" meant. We recently had a very good player join our guild. He's really a fantastic guy too, which works out very well... positive, good sense of humor, and generally very patient. After 2 wipes on Thaddius, he whispered me with the statement "I f*cking give up." This surprised me given how I'd repeatedly told him our progression status, and how we generally rolled regarding raids. Later, the new guildie apologized and we talked shop for a while. I have to admit at times that when it seems people just don't listen I become very frustrated with the game. After a while though, I remember my early days of raiding Molten Core and Zul'Gurub, how while I studied boss strategies I didn't really "get the big picture." We all have more fun when we help others to be better at their craft. Patience is a virtue. A temporary, reflexive flash of anger is understandable in such an environment. In the long run, however, those that are constantly insulting others because of the way they move their pixels without providing any positive input as to how they can improve have simply become too involved. Too obsessed with something that will be obsolete in a few years.

You're paying good money to play a game. Have fun. Don't ruin the fun of others. That's really our guild's policy in the end, and the policy I base my playstyle around.
